9ja Girls Safe Spaces are dedicated facilities where girls can take Life, Love & Health (LLH) classes, participate in opt-out individual counseling, and receive SRH services, including contraception.
Through partnerships, all 9ja Girls Safe Spaces are integrated into unused spaces in existing public and private clinics.
Within each community, 9ja Girls operates either one independent Flagship facility, or a cluster of 9ja Girls Safe Spaces embedded within Public Healthcare Centres (PHCs) and private clinics.
WHY IT MATTERS
These holistic spaces are stigma-free, allowing girls to seamlessly gain skills; ask questions, share and learn; and access SRH services.
Because 9ja Girls Safe Spaces offer vocational skills classes, parents and influencers support having 9ja Girls Safe Spaces in their community and encourage adolescent girls to participate.
